Unwavering Devotion – A Poem

Today as I stood under

the stark winter trees

And felt the sun


On my face,

I thought about their nakedness;

how winter comes and robs


them of lushness,

Leaving them shrivelled and barren

And how they just keep


standing there,

patient and firm

Until the spring comes


And embraces them in her abundance.

Once again they become lush

and oh so perfect


You can hardly believe

Winter ever came around

to steal that bloom
